Superfood Energy Bites
These are no culinary masterpieces but they provide great energy for a workout!
2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Goji Berries
1 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder
½ tsp to 1 tsp Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder (optional)
5 large Medjool Dates (soaked)
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
1 tsp Matcha Powder (optional)
1 tsp Spirulina
1 tsp Water
1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder (or extract)
pinch Sea Salt
Toss everything into a food processor and process until a mixture that will stick together forms. The dates should be completely broken down and the goji berries in small pieces.
Remove from food processor and form into a log. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 min to firm up. Cut into 8 pieces.
The matcha and cacao give an interesting flavour, the dates and maca give a sweetness and the salt helps balance the flavours. Eat one before a workout for easily digestible fuel and an antioxidant boost! Adding the optional ingredients is highly recommended since they provide awesome benefits.
